|IBW-PAN - Institute of Hydro-Engineering, Polish Academy of Science (Poland) IBW PAN, employing 68 people, covers fundamental and applied research in marine and inland water engineering, coastal engineering, soil mechanics and foundation, geotechnics, geo-mechanics and environmental engineering. The activities of the Institute are based on the methods of applied mechanics and mathematics, both analytical and numerical. Classical methods of hydromechanics,
hydraulics and geo-mechanics have been adapted for standard investigations, and some new and original methods developed. Theoretical studies are supplemented with extensive laboratory and field investigations.
